The Lifted Veil


Published October 2, 2009


LibriVox recording of The Lifted Veil, by George Eliot. Read by Bruce Pirie.

The Lifted Veil is a novella by George Eliot, first published in 1859. Quite unlike the realistic fiction for which Eliot is best known, The Lifted Veil explores themes of extrasensory perception, the essence of physical life, possible life after death, and the power of fate. The novella is a significant part of the Victorian tradition of horror fiction. (Summary from Wikipedia)
